Route sign on the byway between the National Trust's Levant and Botallack mines

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange and remarkably good signage (in this direction only) for NCN route 3.

A marker post for the HArTT cycle route.

Signage at the Kelpies, at the last proper bridge across this section of the canal.

Signage at the Kelpies Marina. The destinations across the canal can only be reached by crossing the lock gate in the background, or by going back to the bridge near the Kelpies car park.

Signage at the Kelpies Marina.

Four ways, only two signposted, and a desire line becoming apparent.

A marker post for the HArTT cycle route's right turn. The path ahead leads to a bridge across the River Carron, so I'd expect a little more signage at this junction.

Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

A HArTT marker post for a right turn.

A HArTT marker post.

The HArTT path gets narrower, and starts twisting and turning.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

Pedestrian signage on the HArTT cycle path at Bainsford, although not actually at a junction.

Signage for the HArTT cycle route, in its usual tiny writing.

An 'End of Cycle Route' sign on the Forth & Clyde Canal towpath near the Falkirk Wheel, but which cycle route is it that ends here? NCN754 continues to Clydebank. The ramp to the right leads to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park.

A signpost within Palacerigg Country Park, but no mention of Cumbernauld's cycle route 2a to Abronhill which starts around here.

The entrance to Palacerigg Country Park, where Cumbernauld's cycle route 1 starts. There are no signs for the Cumbernauld cycle network within the park, although there is a map (see #102067).

The Kelvin Walkway diversion via Contin Place. Still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Wyndford Drive.

Diversion signed with blue (permanent) rather than yellow NCN stickers. And still no dropped kerb at the start of the path to Contin Place.

Narborough Road South

Cycleway alongside a trunk road.

Route 4 bridge

Hand Avenue meets Braunstone Lane Cycle route sign points left to: Meridian Business Park Narborough

Route 4 meets Hockley Farm Road

Cycleway alongside New Parks Way The obscured sign directs to Braunstone straight on.

New Parks Way - an older generation of the signs with no mention of 'Route 4'.

Milepost in Barnstaple.

NCN27 and NCN3

Route signs and No Entry Except Cyclists towards the Euston Road

NCN27 milepost

NCN route 50 near Stowe - but the signs say route 70 (which actually crosses the north of England)

Narrow country roads traffic usually slows down and passes each other carefully.

Not only does the cycle route cross Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing, and not a toucan crossing with the extra call buttons, but the sign for the cycle route into East Kilbride is pointing the wrong way! There are no furth ... [more]

The cycle route into East Kilbride crosses Stewartfield Way at this split pedestrian crossing.

Why can't the corner be more rounded? What are the bollards for? Why isn't there a distance for the town centre? The cycle route doesn't even go as far as the town centre. It gives up on Queensway at #31505.

The cycle route joins a path.

East Kilbride a quarter of a mile away? Only the very edge of town.

Anonymous route signs for the cycle route to Thorntonhall and Eaglesham, but nothing for the shared footway ahead.

The end of the Stewartfield Way cycle route, from Kingsgate to the National Museum of Rural Life. The bollards were a little tight, especially so close to the turn onto the crossing.

Both East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn right after the underpass, but definitely not NCN route 3.

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 turn left here, but only this tiny vandalised sign marks the way.

A vandalised sign for NCN756 in a non-standard format, and no dropped kerb to allow cyclists to leave the carriageway and join the path.

The railway path into East Kilbride, NCN756, with a sign for "Primary Schools" off to the left.

Clear signage for destinations along NCN756, but none for some of the paths off to the side. Highfield Place's turn-off.

NCN756 turns left to leave the railway path alignment, while the cycle route to Blantyre and Hamilton starts, but is only signed as going to East Mains. There's a sign for Hamilton up on Wilson Place.

NCN756 leaves the railway path and joins The Gateway and Mavor Avenue.

The cycle route from Blantyre joins NCN756. The railway path has now been properly surfaced.

The cycle route from Blantyre leaves Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the sign. A dropped kerb at the end of the path would be of assistance to anyone cycling to or from Wilson Place itself.

The cycle route from Blantyre crosses Wilson Place to join NCN756, but no mention of NCN756 on the signs. Also, if the markings barely fit on the pavement, the shared footway is probably too narrow.

The Blantyre to East Kilbride cycle route crosses Kingsway here.

Motorists: Don't U-turn Cyclists: U-turn The A749 crossing on NCN756 outside the Kingsgate Retail Park, before the cycle route makes its way through Nerston village.

The Stewartfield cycle route meets the cycle route along Stewartfield Way (connecting the National Museum of Rural Life to NCN756 at Kingsgate), but only directional signage for the latter.

The Stewartfield cycle route leaves Stewartfield Crescent and takes the path. There would appear to be room for a diagonal connecting path to avoid the right angled corners on the path as it is, originally designed for use only by pedestria ... [more]

The Stewartfield cycle route leaves the path to join the footway of Stewartfield Crescent.

Directional signage on the cycle route through Stewartfield, but only in one direction.

The cycle route to Stewartfield doesn't actually have any destination signs in the direction towards Stewartfield. Turn right here for Stewartfield, or continue straight ahead to #31495 where the shared footway along West Mains Road ends. ... [more]

East Kilbride cycle routes 2 and 3 come out of the underpass and split to proceed in opposite directions. So I'd expect better signage than this!

A route sign for East Kilbride cycle route 2, but is it pointing along the path or the carriageway?

A route sign that appears to have been twisted around, since it is facing the houses in Mount Cameron Drive North.

A route sign for route 'P', pointing into the Tesco supermarket. This sign is also found at #31508.

The first sign in a while for East Kilbride cycle route 2. The next sign (pointing left) has a letter 'P' on a red background.

East Kilbride cycle route 2 in St Leonards.

A sign for National Cycle Network Route 2, except it's actually for East Kilbride route 2, and doesn't clearly identify whether it is for the road on the right or the path just beyond it.

The route finally arrives at the Brancumhall Estate, turning right off of Morrishall Road into Galloway Road.

The route to Brancumhall turns onto Morrishall Road. There was no indication that this route (which made its way along Calderwood Road on the footway) is not on-road along this section of fairly busy and fast road.

The 'Recommended Route for Cyclists' signs on this route are all facing across the carriageway instead of along it. So consistently that it looks like an installation problem rather than vandalism.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout, including some pointing up a flight of steps.

Signs at the Whitemoss Roundabout. I can see a problem with the route to the Sports Centre, and I'm not sure the signs for the Health Centre are pointing the right way. The nearest health centre might be the Hunter Health Centre back in the ... [more]

This way to the cycle route, at Whitemoss Roundabout.

A sign for the Sports Centre, but what about the cycle route all the way to Brancumhall?

A sign for East Kilbride town centre. But choose the further away path if you intend to use the shared footway and don't want to bump over the grass (see #107587).

The cycleway along the Whitemoss Avenue footway (see #107581) is signed into the park and towards Avondale Avenue (and the path with steps in #107573).

The last sign I encountered on the Whitehills cycle route.

The Whitehills cycle path at the Stroud Road underpass, leading to Whitehills Terrace where cyclists rejoin the carriageway.

End of the Whitehills cycle route, but with a Toucan crossing across Quarry Road it could be extended along the path to Greenhills. The nearest dropped kerb to join the carriageway is at the uncontrolled crossing beyond the bus stop.

The start of the Whitehills cycle path at Quarry Road, but no dropped kerb. Plenty of room for a Toucan crossing across to the path to Greenhills.

A route sign for the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route facing a grassy slope with no path across it. The access has been moved further west (see #107502).

The first sign that the East Kilbride cycle route 1 has morphed into the East Kilbride to Strathaven cycle route. Some of the signs on this route include the '1' number, others such as these do not.

Signs for East Kilbride's cycle route 1 pointing both left and right at the Westwood Hill junction. Maybe the one across the junction is for the right turn into Newlands Road and has got twisted around.

Rockhampton Avenue ends in a Fire Path with a rather messy gap between the kerb ridges. No cycle exemption from the 'No Entry' signs, and a route sign pointing right at the far side of the junction, when East Kilbride's cycle route 1 turns ... [more]

The first sign on East Kilbride's cycle route 1 that says where it is going, and the next time a destination is mentioned it has changed to Strathaven.

Another junction on East Kilbride's cycle route 1 where there is only a sign in one direction at a turn. If only the routes wasn't so darned complicated!
